Craig McCook

Finance Manager

Craig grew up on a small farm in Oregon where he developed an appreciation for sustainable and healthy foods and a love for the outdoors. After college, he joined the Peace Corps and worked with small farmers in Latvia, helping them adapt to a new economic system and go organic. He is excited to bring a passion for sustainable agriculture to his work with the Non-GMO Project.

After earning his MBA, Craig managed the local office of an NGO in Azerbaijan before deciding to return to the US and settle back in the Northwest. For the past twenty years, he has served in corporate finance and strategy roles with a number of companies including Starbucks, Brooks and T-Mobile. Craig believes we all have a right to know what is in our food so we can make informed choices about what we consume, and he is eager to apply his skills and experience toward the Project’s mission.  

Outside of work, Craig enjoys travel, hiking, skiing, standup paddle-boarding and hanging out with his daughters. He currently serves on the board of a Seattle non-profit providing adult education to immigrants and refugees.
